's lead -- seven days later, and paul ryan still can't handle the truth. one week after president obama crushed the gop, congressman paul ryan returned to his day job on capitol hill today, carrying his own bags, like much of the republican party, he still seems dazed about the national rejection he took. and in an interview he told a local tv station what it felt like to lose. >> what it had become clear to us as things went on, in avirginia and ohio weren't coming together, that it looked to me some time early in the evening that it just wasn't going to happen. >> and what did that feel like for you? what -- >> it was very disappointing. we had good days, bad days. it was a great experience. i'm very fortunate to have had this experience, but losing never feels good. >> no, losing doesn't feel good. but not learning the lessons of that loss isn't good either. at his core this election was about fairness, giving, everyone a fair shot. congressman ryan doesn't -- he doesn't get it. >> was this a referendum on your budget plan, do you think? >> i don't think we lost it on those budget is
be worried this fun is coming to an end, take heart, we still have paul ryan to kick around. that's right. the republican party's leading intellectual announced today he's returning to his seat in the united states house of representatives, where hserves as chairman of the budget so, m. lost but his war against medicare and social security carries on. let's bring in dana milbank, columnist for "the washington post." dana, has this election damaged the paul ryan brand or is he still the golden boy? >> well, he's still the goldena conservatives who basically dominate this caucus. th dynamichere. you had john boehner come out today and actually float the idea of, heaven forbid, an increase in tax revenues. that's a direct repudiation of what paul ryan has stood for. because he tied himself to closely to paul ryan's economic plan, it basically became a repudiation of that plan as well. >> now, paul ryan is often mentione as a possible presidential candidate for 2016. but don't reblicans have to have a serious think about that? i mean, given last night's results, is paul ryan part of the solut
. so has the gop listened and learned from the voters who defeated them? paul ryan is among the members returning to capitol hill today as congress gets back to work. so what does he have to say? >> it was a well-run campaign. we made this campaign about big ideas and big issues, which is the kind of campaign we wanted to run, so we ran the kind of campaign we wanted to run, and it just wasn't enough at the end of the day and we just have to accept that. >> big ideas, big issues that lost. it seems acceptance is the final stage of grief. let's get to our panel now. in washington msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "showdown" and here in new york joy reid, who is managing editor of the grio and william cohen, an author and columnist for the bloomberg view. if i can start with you, joy, if we might take a momentary break from days of lives centcom edition, this week is crucial for the president in terms of setting his agenda for the second term. >> the president now has to take the victory he won in the election which was decisive in an electoral sense, it was a landslide. and t
this country deeply. >> i want to thank paul ryan for all he's done for our campaign. >> i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties. >> assuming i win, one of the benefits to be able to get -- >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. >> at a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. >> we need to stand up and stop him from fundamentally changing the united states. >> we got to be careful about calling things when we have, like, 991 votes separating the two candidates. >> well, i'm disappointed. >> we're the shallowest country in the history of man. >> we know in our hearts that for the united states of america, the best is yet to come. ♪ >>> the best is yet to come. these are the words of the 44th president of the united states, following his imemphatic victory last night. the family is departing from chicago on air force one, bound for the white house, a place they'll call home for another four years. the president put together the most diverse coalition in history, winning a sweep of battleground st
. you see the pictures of him aalongside his running mate, paul ryan. an opportunity for a photo op. they say he's the one that said as long as we're out there, i insist on going to another place. where else can we go? that's why they'll stop in pennsylvania later today. romney on the ground in ohio having a chance to thank volunteers at a campaign offices, what they call their victory offices in ohio. also having a chance to try to get out some of the vote and motivate some of the people there. we're told, tamron, he made a stop at a local wendy's to say i'm like the rest of you ordering a burger without any cheese. so that's what he's doing. he prepares for the evening. he'll be back here at the campaign headquarters and hopes to give an acceptance speech. he's been practicing for both. writing that speech on his plane on his own ipad hours aago. >> with everything contentious going to wendy's is so risky. so many love mcdonald's. thank you very much. let's go to nbc white house correspondent kristen welker in chicago. that president at that polling place, but his remarks yesterda
a message for the world that's watching. we are going to elect mitt romney and paul ryan president and vice president of the united states. >> welcome back to the "the ed show." that of course was the ohio governor last night. he and other conservatives, they're living basically i think in a state of denial. they are casting aside every poll and trying to create this narrative out there that they are just in great shape in the buckeye state. this latest poll tells a different story. the president leads by 6 points. it will be tough for mitt romney to make up that kind of ground in the final days. >> sean hannity, this date has flipped from the blue column to the red column. mitt romney will win ohio and he's going to win ohio easily. >> holy smokes. meanwhile karl rove is acting like mitt romney has already got the thing all wrapped up. >> for the president to have wiped out his victory margin by poor performance in the early voting and the republicans are going to take election day, boeds well for romney for election day. i think ohio is going to be a squeaker, maybe 80, 100, 110,000 vote
turnout is down radically. the republican counties are up. i think paul ryan and frankly people in wisconsin, as you know as a good cheese head, people in wisconsin are very proud of the local boy doing well and i think ryan is likely to help carry the state. my guess is wisconsin will go for romney. >> president bill clinton, we brought up pennsylvania. i thought it unusual that he -- the fact that he was going to pennsylvania for president obama this late was actually case that the obama campaign was not so certain that that is locked up? >> the fact that romney was in bucks county sunday night for a huge rally, i think over 30,000 people, the fact that he's coming back to pittsburgh which we are told is the second biggest area of democrats for romney after north carolina, is a bag indicator. the fact that karl rove's group, he himself said has put $2 million in advertising this week into pennsylvania tells you pennsylvania is a plan. i agree with you," it's smart to send bill clinton is because obama can't help himself. there are though votes there that he doesn't have that a
was also asked about congressman paul ryan's pecking order with the house republicans. let me play what he said regarding where paul ryan the vp candidate, now stands with him. >> congressman paul ryan is he the leader of the republican party now? >> oh i wouldn't think so. paul ryan's a policy wonk. >> he's a policy wonk. basically right now i'm still the man. so how does speaker boehner, if he's the man and most reasonable guy in washington how does he get some of the conservatives, including even paul ryan a guy who is newly minted in some way with a little bit of juice, to come along? >> i think if you look at how this will actually unfold you find your answer tamron. the fact of the matter is a very small number of people will negotiate a deal or not. that includes speaker boehner. it includes majority leader reid and the white house. once they come up with a deal whatever it looks like it's going to be subject to an up or down vote. this isn't something you amend and say i'd like to offer an amendment to change that tax bracket. no, no. it's an up or down vote
: half of wisconsin voters have a favorable opinion of paul ryan, it was not enough to give romney a win. he lost his home state. >> brian: that was a dominant win in wisconsin. >> steve: despite the push in pennsylvania. voters gave the 20 electoral vote to president obama. >> brian: what happened to dead heat and too close to call. pennsylvania, president obama got out in front and never let go. we have long. john roberts is with mitt romney in headquarters and phil keatings in florida, keeping phil up all night. starting with wendall. happy people? >> not much change. president has faur more year slightly larger majority in senate and republicans still control the house . two parties still have to come up with a budget deal to avoid tax hikes and spending cuts. president obama is relected with the highest unemployment rate of 7 seven.9 percent. it was held here in the mccormic center. it was still a party and a lot earlier than had feared. the president thanked romney and paul ryan for a hard fought campaign. >> i have listened to you and i are learned from you and you can made me a b
in july. and for bungling that foreign trip to england, israel and poland. he announced paul ryan as his running mate but that didn't produce the bump he needed. as the focus of the race turned to medicare and the ryan budget. the republican convention was disrupted by weather and a guy talking to an empty chair. and then mid september, the leaked video of mitt romney's 47% remark surfaced. the first presidential debate, romney bested obama in front of 66 million people and began to benefit from mement tum. and then hurricane sandy hit. on tuesday romney will try to unseat an incumbent president, he's trying to knock a party out of power after just one term. while the president is targeting each part of his coalition with a handful of small arguments, romney is counting on winning the large one. >> he made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep, i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. >> so where does that leave us? the two campaigns believe passionately in two differen
oklahoma republican tom cole, what does he think about mitt romney and paul ryan losing this election? his take away is this. the paul ryan budget passed a pretty big test. we had to run around the country and defend it. the ryan budget proved itself a viable platform on which to run and be reelected. wow. just to reiterate, this is what happened on election night. how does this constitute the ryan budget passing a big test. it took a big test but it did not pass that test, two very deficit things. the lesson of this election for republicans appears to be all that stuff we ran on, it totally worked. think about what determines what the republican party does next. what determines how they fix their political problems. the question of who is going to be the new face of the republican party and how they will course correct after this disastrously bad election for them, it all depends how they assess what just went wrong and why it went so wrong. what do they think their problem is that caused the country to reject them so emphatically in 2012. the signs how their self-assessment is going so f
in dubuque. back to you. >> in about 30 minutes we'll hear from paul ryan, campaigning for mitt romney in battleground virginia my home state. must be slightly awkward for him today given politico's exclusive story saying ryan wasn't romney ace first choice for vp, it was chris christie. so jonathan what do you make of these reports, your out let there. politico saying romney was planning on going with christie and after his trip to israeling changed his mind? >> there was a significant intrigue going on even as these candidates are rumbling, stumbling and bumbling around the country in the last week if i can borrow your keith jackson refrain there. >> can you have it, actually. i don't think i'll be doing that again. >> mike allen and jim from politico reported chris christie was the number one choice for mitt romney at one point, he went to london for the olympics, came back and ended up picking paul ryan. there's a lot of bad blood right now between the romney campaign and the chris christie folks and we're seeing that spill out here right in the last couple of days. >> you know, le
. remember that at the republican convention, paul ryan talked about or tried to blame president obama for the closing of the gm plant in janesville. last night, janesville voted for obama and biden over their own hometown candidate. >> isn't that something? >> and the surrounding county voted 60% for obama and biden. >> john nichols, great to have you with us tonight. thanks so much. >>> did the war on women cost the gop the election? president of the national organization for women, terry o'neill, weighs in on that next. >>> then, ballots and bigotry. find out what the republicans need to understand if they want to take back the white house some day. the new political reality and americans' demographics, next. >>> this is what winning feels like. last night, america put a stop to an extreme right-wing agenda. we stopped planned parenthood from being defunded. we stopped roe v. wade from being overturned. we stopped health care reform from being repealed. that's a lot, isn't it? the gop's radical platform was clearly rejected and women had a major hand in making sure the clock on prog
's paul ryan on the urban vote. let's listen to paul ryan and his looking at this whole ethnic, or urban vote he calls it. >> we were surprised with the outcome. we knew this was going to be a close race. we thought we had a very good chance of winning it. i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout in especially urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> you know, ashley, they got to get their accusations straight. somebody on -- one of the leaders of the republican party out there in wisconsin said all the votes were fraudulent votes, they were all stolen. and now he's out there, the presidential candidate, saying they were all bought. and now this guy is -- i have to say to paul ryan, he was just surprised they showed up. he hasn't quite figured out the motive yet. >> i think the romney campaign obviously didn't take into account the huge turnout that the president got. that was one of the problems with their polling. >> is that why they're looking for new explanations? >> i mean, i think they're truly struggling to expl
. if there is anybody that comes across as the big loser of this election season, it's not mitt romney or paul ryan it has got to be karl rove. he prides himself as being the smartest man in american politics. he did get george bushel elected as governor and george bush elected as president but then he bragged about -- he was going to create the permanent republican majority and he sold that crap in the white house, and people believed him. did it work? hum, i don't think so. >> yeah how did that work? >> i don't think john mccain got elected, did he? >> no, i don't remember him winning. >> and i don't remember this guy -- mitt romney getting elected either. so then karl rove comes up with this american cross roads idea. of course the supreme court gave him a big give in citizens united, so they could raise this millions and millions and millions of dollars, and support all right-wing candidates and throw them into senate races, house races and the presidential race. and then karl rove goes on and some of the stuff he said -- he was so wrong. it's unbelievable. the "washington post
congratulated him and paul ryan on a hard-fought campaign. we may have battled fiercely, but it's only because we love this country deeply and we care so strongly about its future. from george to lenore to their son mitt, the romney family has chose tone give back to americans through public service. that is their legacy that we honor and applaud tonight. [cheering] >> word also that governor romney spoke by phone with the president to congratulate him on the victory. then the former g.o.p. challenger graciously accepted defeat before a crowd of his own supporters, that were gathered outside his campaign headquarters in boston. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory, his supporters and his campaign also deserve congratulations. i wish all of them well. but particularly the president, the first lady and their daughters. this is a time of great challenges for america. and i pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation. >> paul ryan will return to washington, not as the next vice-president. but he did win re-election to the congressional seat
. paul ryan who i think will be a leader. you have a whole rising young generation. you have bobby jindal, nikki haley. new senator in texas, marco rubio, a whole generation that were just a year or two short from running this time are all going to be in the fray next time. i think they are future. all this soul searching about what ideology we're going pursue and i think it will be reaganite and conservative one. >> jon: that is charles krauthammer with his take with mitt romney on the g.o.p. candidate and the future of the republican party. he was one of the bright stars or bright spots i guess. all the other media seemed to be down on the g.o.p.. >>> i think that charles krauthammer is interesting in this case it's a majority view. most people definitely believe that party needs to look at itself. there is a lot of soul stepping that needs to go on. the assumption that blacks and hispanics would not turn out -- when you have this statistic staring you in the face, 50,000 hispanic americans turn 18 every month in this country you better take a look at the party. >> i agree with that. yo
hampshire michigan, nevada, wisconsin! paul ryan said home state. >> paul ryan who? >> bill: i know. and of course, ohio! right! and then. >> got my ohio state hat on. >> bill: north carolina, sadly went to mitt romney, and that's a battleground state he won. florida is still -- don't know where we came out. >> too close to call. >> bill: the president last night stepping on stage at the mccormick center, first thing he did was salute. there were three people that really helped. bill clinton for sure. joe biden for sure and michelle obama. >> michelle, i have never loved you more, i have never been prouder that watch the rest of america fall in love with you too, as our nation's first lady. [ cheers and applause ] >> bill: a great moment there. the president saying last night listen i have not maybe been the perfect president. he always says that, but i was listening to what you wanted me to do and i tried to do my best. >> obama: whether i earned our vote or not, i have listened to you. i have learned from you and you've made me a better president. >> bill: and just jump in here to
the day waiting around. he and paul ryan will make an 11th hour appeal to voters. bill: paul ryan meets him in pittsburgh before leading to richmond, virginia. wendall goler is live in chicago where president obama will await election results. john, yesterday was not the last day of campaigning. how did this decision to campaign today come about for governor romney? >> reporter: it's not over until it's over. we talked to campaign advisers who said they are sitting on the tarmac in virginia. governor romney said i don't want to sit in a hotel room and wait for something to happen. he said let's do something tomorrow. they said where should we go? he said how about cleveland? he said great idea, let's go to cleveland. where else can we go? they are going to pittsburgh as well. they have paul ryan going to cleveland and richmond. the governor pulling out all the stops to not let it ever be said he didn't do all he could to get as many people out to the polls as possible. as he said in columbus he said not only was he going to do that work but he implored his supporters to do it as well. >
the jeb bush/chris christie side of this ledger and the paul ryan/mike huckabee side of the ledger. >> richard vigory, the direct mail expert, he pioneered the field of direct mail. he put out a statement as a bugle call. i think you're on the other side of the fit. mitt romney's loss was the death rattle of the establishment gop. far from signaling a rejection of the tea party or grassroots conservatives, the disaster of 2012 signals the beginning of the battle to take over the republican party and the opportunity to establish the gop as the party of small government, constitutional conservative. john, react to that. >> i don't care about richard. i really don't care about him. what i want to say is this. mike huckabee gets diversity. he was an excellent governor and i don't agree with mike huckabee on everything but don't throw mike huckabee opposite of jeb bush. i think paul ryan gets it, too. >> ryan is an anti-immigrant republican. he took up all this language they've used. you know, mitt romney went on and talked about people self-deporting. when you do that and when you try
's running mate paul ryan is trying to complete a hail mary pass in wisconsin. it was off to ohio as well. >> two more days. just two more days. two more days. this is one of those elections we will think back and look at for years. a critical influkz point. >> president obama is on top by just half a point. romney isn't as close in the states where the election is going to be decided. in paul ryan's home state of wisconsin, the president leads by an average of more than 4 points. president obama has kept a steady two-point lead in nearby iowa. in the most important state, ohio, the president's lead has not diminished in recent week. he maintains a three-point lead. the obama campaign isn't leaving anything for chan in the buckeye state. vice president joe biden was in cleveland, that area today. he also sat down with my colleague, chris matthews. >> what do you think's going to happen? >> i think that we're going to win. i don't think it's going to be close for the electoral college. i think we're going to win clearly and i think you're going to see we're going to win this state ohio. i'
